Around 30 volunteers of The Events Centre, Caloundra recently celebrated a successful and busy year, with five of them clocking up 10 years of service.
The Centre’s volunteer program commenced in 2007 and is led passionately by volunteer coordinator Lesley Muir.
More than 50 volunteers work as ushers at the Centre or meet and greet patrons for events and performances.
The five volunteers celebrating 10 years of service were each awarded a certificate from The Events Centre general manager Gary Mears.
The five long-serving volunteers are Lynne Rix, Loraine Porter, Marie Mulcahy, Marlena Lambert and Lesley Muir.
The Events Centre Chairman Cr Tim Dwyer said: “The Centre is deeply committed to collaborating with the community and we rely heavily on a large number of volunteers to ensure a high level of service is provided in many aspects of their operations.”
“We sincerely thank our volunteers as friends of the theatre for their invaluable help and without whom we would not be able to continue our work as effectively.
"The depth of their commitment demonstrates the value that members of the community have in ensuring that the Centre stays connected and relevant to the residents of the Sunshine Coast and its many visitors."
